In the market for a laptop in the near future

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
In the future ill be in the market for a laptop which is suitable for gaming as well as work. Ive been eyeing up this:

http://www.rockdirect.com/viewNotebo...=PEGASUS%20670

Taking the P670-T7500, upgrading the ram to 2GB (667Mhz) and switiching the 120GB 5400rpm HDD with a 100GB 7200rpm one.

Does anyone have any experience with the brand and their products, are there better choices available to me in the UK, and are there any upgrades that it would be better to get rather than leave out? (For example, is it worth upgrading the ram to 2GB 800Mhz?)

The specs look pretty nice, i need it to hold together for a long long time.

i would actually recomend the asus C90s

http://1toppc.com/Merchant2/merchant...duct_Code=C90S

i configured this with 2gb of ram, 160gb hard drive, and the wireless N card and it came $1177. i'm going to be putting my E4300 in it when i get my quad core next month. The best thing about this notebook is that its fully customizable. which is great so u dont have to buy a new laptop just to keep up with games. i was actually wondering if the notebook would run a quad core in it

wow, that looks nice, and cheaper too. Does anyone know where i can purchase one of these in the UK? I looked on google and the Asus uk website but they dont seem to have it, just a bunch of reviews...

i also love the fact that you can upgrade this.. perhaps the 8600 can be replaced by an 8950gtx (if there is going to be one) when there is money available..

just need a UK dealer for this. I also dont mind if i can only buy the barebones in the UK and then i can order parts (maybe ill even save money that way!)
